2021 Sachsenring Moto2 FP3 Result: Running Out Of Headlines For Gardner

The final chase for the top 14 looked like it got settled early on for the intermediate class, but a few riders had other plans for the final handful of minutes of FP3. Behind Remy Gardner, who led the way throughout the session once more, there were some late improvements from teammate Raul Fernandez and Fabio Di Giannantonio, who climbed into a top three covered by two tenths of a second.

Xavi Vierge continued his progress with fourth place, with compatriot Marcos Ramirez joining the top five. Augusto Fernandez in sixth place was the last rider within half a second of the leader and only narrowly ahead of home favourite Marcel Schrotter and rookie Ai Ogura. Jake Dixon found some speed to climb into ninth place, while Jorge Navarro rounded out the top 10.

Somkiat Chantra placed both Honda Team Asia bikes directly in Q2 with 11th position, ahead of Sam Lowes, one of the few riders who failed to improve their top times from Friday, although he did get really close. Joe Roberts and Nicolò Bulega took the remaining Q2 tickets and left the likes of Tony Arbolino, Bo Bendsneyder, Aron Canet or Marco Bezzecchi to fight it off in Q1, although all of those riders ended the session within nine tenths of top spot.
